Haridwar - Gateway to God

HaridwarHaridwar (हरिद्वार), also spelled Hardwar, is a city in the state of Uttarakhand. Haridwar, literally Gateway to God, is one of the Hindu holy places in India and a center of Hindu religion and mysticism for centuries. Located on the banks of River Ganges (Ganga), at the point where the Ganges descends from the hills to the North Indian plains, Haridwar attracts a large number of Hindu pilgrims from all over the world.

Haridwar

Festivals

Haridwar is the site of many religious festivals. Most notably, once every twelve years it is the venue for the Kumbh Mela, humanity’s largest festival, which drew a record 70 million in 2003. (The festival rotates between Haridwar and Allahabad, Ujjain and Nashik.) The Ardh Mela, or “half mela”, is held every six years. Both will be held in Haridwar for the next time in 2010.

Other yearly festivals include:

  • Baisakhi, April.
  • Kanwar Mela, July. The largest yearly festival, drawing up to 300,000 visitors.
  • Somwati Amavasya, July. Almost as large as the Kanwar Mela.
  • Kartik Purnima, held 15 days after Diwali on the first night of the full moon in November.

See the Haridwar city website for a complete listing. While the festivals are colorful and fascinating, they also strain the town’s limited infrastructure to the breaking point and sometimes beyond. Book rooms and tickets well in advance, and avoid travel by road as the traffic jams can be horrendous.

Get inHaridwar is about 200 kms from Delhi, the capital of India and is well connected by road and rail network from all parts of India. It is better to avoid travelling to Haridwar during the hindu month of sawan (around july) since there is a heavy crowd and all important roads are blocked and most of the hotels/busses/trains are crowded.

By plane

Dehradun’s Jolly Grant airport, with twice daily service to Delhi on Air Deccan , is 20 km from Haridwar.

By train

Haridwar Junction (IR station code : HW) is well-connected by train. The railway station is located on the south side of the town, within walking distance of most hotels.

By bus

Haridwar’s bus station, a stone’s throw from the train station, is chaotic and has no signage whatsoever in English. There are regular bus services from Delhi (4-5 hours), Rishikesh (1 hour) and other important towns of North India to Haridwar. Though they claim they reach New Delhi in 4-5 hours they take at least 6-7 hours. Due to the traffic jams in the roads leading in and out of Delhi it can even take 7-8 hours. Before booking the bus check the bus condition. Always go for cushioned and push-back seats. The long and bumpy ride will take a toll on your mood and body.

Get around

Central Haridwar can be reasonably comfortably covered on foot. Cyclerickshaws abound, and most trips in town should not cost more than Rs. 20. Taxis and autorickshaws congregate at the train and bus stations.

See

  • Hari-ki-Pairi (or Har-ki-Pairi). To the north of the center, this is Haridwar’s focal point, where devotees gather to bathe and worship on the Ganges. According to legend, this is where a drop of nectar fell from the churning of the oceans when the world was created, and a stone wall has Vishnu’s footprint. Each evening around 7 PM, thousands gather and worship the river Goddess by putting diyas (floating lamps) in the river. You may be asked to make a donation if you linger near the ghats. Beware of con artists posing as officials. If you would like to make a donation there are boxes at the center of the ghats around the light poles.
  • Maya Devi Mandir , located on upper road. This temple is one of the 51 “shakti peeths” and its the presiding deity of Haridwar. It is from this temple Haridwar derives its other name Mayapur.
  • Mansa Devi Mandir, atop a hill near the center of town. Can be reached by cable car (Rs 48 for a return ticket) or by a road that gently winds uphill (about 2 km), starting from Railway Rd. The temple is aesthetically not particularly noteworthy, but the views are grand. Expect to queue to board the cable car and once more to enter the temple: despite some rudimentary attempts at crowd control, the crowds of jostling devotees can make this a pretty intense experience.
  • Bharat Mata Mandir, 5 km north of the center. Dedicated to Mother India, this is half temple, half nation building exercise, with seven floors stacked with deities, saints, and secular heroes of all Indian faiths. Some signage in English.
  • Chandidevi Mandir,8-9KM from railway station, you get the combi package to see both the temples by AC bus including bus and ropeway charges
  • Daksh mandir,7-8 km from railway station,you get rickshaw or you can hire a auto,near also many mandirs to see at kankhal.
  • Bilkeshwar Mahadev Mandir , Shiva temple located on a hill.
  • Vaishno Devi Mandir
  • Ma Anandamayee Ashram, Located at Kankhal. The samadhi of Shree Shree Ma Anandamayee is located here and is also the Head Office of the revered organisation. It is a must see. Devotees included late Mrs Indira Gandhi (ex Prime Minister of India). Attend the evening aarti near Ma’s samadhi and have a soul cleansing experience.

Haridwar, the holy city is one of the most renowned pilgrimage centers in India. Pilgrims from all over the world flock to this sacred city to take a dip in the holy waters of River Ganga.Being a destination for pilgrimage tourism, shopping in Haridwar is not on the itinerary of the tourist.

However shops in Haridwar have some interesting things to offer to the tourist. The main shopping centers are Moti bazaar, Upper Road, Jwalapur and Kankhal. You can also check out the Government Handloom and Handicrafts Emporiums and the Gandhi Ashram. Here you will find a range of handicraft decorative pieces. If you are interested in jewellery, then you can choose from a variety of imitation ones which make good fashion accessory.

In Haridwar, you will find neatly and intricately carved stone idols, which make unique souvenirs. It is fascinating that these stones have traversed with Ganga all along and they are eventually deposited in Rishikesh as the river enters the plains. This gives the stones amazing shapes and a natural polish. Besides idols, there are kitchen set toys made from stone, which are interesting buys.

  • Manoharan

    Hope to reach the gateway to god.

  • I and my wife were in Haridwar in Feb. 2006. We were disappointed at the administration of the place –
    very unclean, no crowd crontrol at the Har ki Paudi, MOST OF ALL ARTI BEING PLAYED BY A LATA MANGESHKAR CD. As opposed to it the Arti at Rishikesh is more authentic, sung by human pujaris.

    We HIndus have so much to be proud of but by mis-management we prove as if we are not CIVILIZED.
    Go to the Vatican in Rome, come to MOntreal and see our Churches.

    WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO CATCH UP.

  • Kumar Mahtani

    I agree, with Rajinder – I have visited Haridwar the first time in 1962. After that, have visited many times and the last time was in April, 2007. I find no change in Haridwar, from the first time to the last time. I have cities completely change and become better in 3 to 4 years in many parts of the world. But in Haridwar and many parts of India it looks like time stopped 50 years ago. Wish we Hindus could do better, and change all our Religious Sites for others to appreciate and uplaud and for our coming generations to be proud of our religion. If we dont do it now, we will never do it. One should see the temples in other foreign countries like UK , USA and Canada, which are built by the same Indians and also managed by the same people. Why this cannot happen in our motherland?? It is a pity.

  • Your presentation is quite impressive. The Ganges looks so beautiful at Hardwar ! GOD wiling, I will visit the place one of these days.

  • The presentation quite is impressive. The Ganges looks beautiful at Hardwar, esp. at night ! GOD willing, I will visit the place one of these days.

  • ALOK CHATTERJEE

    nice presentation,but got a little bit demoralised by reading the comments of others.

  • Thanking you, You are good side in suggesion and presentation is a very good so thank for your side and infomation.

  • Seelan Govender

    Hi,
    I am a South African Indian with close family ties in the motherland. I have not visited India but try and read up on what is happening there. By all accounts things are improving by leaps and bounds now that the growth rate in into the double digits. I am sure that these religious sites will soon come into the spotlight as it is the core to the tourism market in India.

    We are not uncivilized in fact we are the most civilized. We should not compare ourselves with other cultures but we should never stop trying to improve. Let us not complain let us all do something no matter where in the universe we are.

  • I agree with Kumar Mahanti.
    I also am sure that the scenario shall never change even in coming 100 years. Reason: Our religous places are under control of thos epeople who are never rich. They earn a lot from these places even then they are hungery. People forget the purpose of visiting these places when they find nothing is related to religion and business is everywhere. Pandits and Purohits are engaged in looting their Zagmaans and all the hotelwalas are making hay in absence of community langar by the shrines itself. These shrines are earning lacs of rupees per day starting a free langar could be a good excersie to prevent the pilgrims from being looted in the open market. But doing so may be harmful for the management committes of these shrines who actually run hotels, dhabas, eating inns in this place through their kins.
    Sikhs are better: You go to any historical Gurudwara be it in Europe, Madras, MP, Maharashtra or Punjab, you will get place to sleep under roof, free langar for everyone. And pilgrims do not keep anything in free, they voluntarily donate in Guru Kee Golak. It is their will and respect for the langar.

    Glory of the Ganges is not anywhere mentioned. The water of Ganga has curative powers. People feel totally transformed after a Ganga Snana. Our traditional lore are abundantly declaring the unseen dynamics of Ganga. Please collect views of Indologists on the hidden powers of Ganga, Kumbhmela and powerspots located on Ganga banks like Rishikesh, Haridwar and Varanasi.

    i like this very much,i will be also there later

  • MOD.RAVIDAN.GAGABHAI

    VERY WELL DONE.IN REAL SENSE IT VIVES US A GREAT RELIGIOUS HERITAGE OF THE NATION. SNAPS ARE TAKEN VERY ARTISTICALLY AND LOVELY.IT INSPIRE FOR VISIT.

  • Sewpaul Baboolal

    I love to visit this place. I live in South Africa and have for the first time in my life visited India. I cannot believe the simple life our people lead there. India is very addictive and i would love to visit again God permitting.

    if you guys in India can send me photos of places of interest and general photos of Indian towns where you live i will really appreciate it.

    Hoping to hear from some one soon

    Regards

  • anand

    As all of you know we have such a wonderful plances and each place has a unique legend and are very sacred. Let Govt (Archelogical Dept) take care of the existing and let them not build new one, that itself is sufficient. I endorse the views of Mr.Rajinder Sud and Mr.Kumar Mahtani. At times tears trickles down without your notice, the way our heritage and culture is being spoiled. Day in day out many dignitaries visit abroad, I do not know why they do not want to uplift our country. The reply is only with the god.

  • Mirle srikantiah chandrasekhar

    A nice presentation with nice pictures. Though has not gone in person, i have heard about crowd at Haridwar during peak times.

  • Mirle srikantiah chandrasekhar

  • I have visited Haridwar the first time in 2007andthe last time was in june, 2009 with wife pinki. I find no change in Haridwar, from the first time to the last time.Wish we Hindus could do better, and change all our Religious Sites for others to appreciate and uplaud and for our coming generations to be proud of our religion.

  • Its so nice , to see our heritage , but how on earth ppl like us can give our ancient heritage to the management like this , tourism ministry has done nothing .

  • The pictures are ‘WOW” very enriching it really tells of the Rich Heritage Culture of India. Should have more in the web. for us to view n keep.
    Helps to spread n preserves the pictures for the future generations to see in case they are lost.
    Keep up the goodies.

  • viksit

    hi !!

    i agree , at haridwar there’s lack of administration and loose control over public residing near har ki pauri..

    But apart from all these it makes a holy spirit in our heart at the evening time of aarti and we could have an wonderful experience ..

    Ganges at haridwar is WONDERFUL……Very good place to visit for Hindus but the place needs some improvement in local administration..

    also for sure one should visit dere …..

  • badrinath.g

    My first visit to the Holy city (and the only one so far,) was during the year 1976.By seing this presentation I genuinely feel I have revisited HARIDWAR. My eternal Prayer to GOD is I physically revisit the holy place, not once more but many more times.

  • rajul

    nice presentation at right time
    v r planining 2 visit haridwar
    hope v reach the gateway 2 god.

  • madurai pooja.d

    when shall we go?

  • krishnadas

    very good job, god bless you……….

  • dipak sharma.

    i agree the cleanliness factor is a huge let down.
    if sufficient litter boxes are placed and huge and small pile of rubble cleared well in time then at least
    the clean look is seen by all and subsequently followed.
    we should ensure that there are toilets in most of the places and well maintained once again so that it is for all to follow.

    facilities and the upkeep will maintain a healthy and clean atmoshere and sponsorship avenues
    yto be explored for generating the upkeep revenues.

  • wonderful, fascinating photographs with reasonable discription.it is muchmore what has been described.
    It merits a visit of Haridwar & Rishikesh. Get ready & plan it.
    Congrats.

  • VENKATESH

    I have been to these place somewhere in 1983. By looking at this pioctures u have brough my live memory back.

    GOOD KEEP IT UP!!!

  • gud keep it up………….

  • Mohan Aina

    Yes I too agree with Kumar Sud & Mahanti the temples and pilgrimage places in India are very much below the western standards. I could view the Funeral of the Pope Paul at Vatican and the arrangements made well they were Superb. I have Visited the Swami Narayan Temple and the Management and the arrangements and the facilites for the devoties are superbly organised. When the other countries do WHY WE CANNOT??? Moreover excuse me – why I have gone to other parts of the world I just remebered the MANAGEMENT OF DURBAR SAHEB AT AMRITSAR – why the examples are not taken from their Management it is also very well maintained & well organised. So The Respected Citizens the choice is in your hands.

  • pralhad

    hiii

    friends thanks for sand me hardwar darshn mail if u have any more photos of that plz sand me

  • I have visited the place in 2003. Like any Indian Pilgrim centre, Haridwar is also crowded and full of activities. Of course, hygenity and cleanliness is at a premium in all these places. The pandas (priests) pretend performing rituals always having an eye on the wallets of tourists especially foreigners. But then you can’t blame the locals for this is the only source of Income for all of them

    Now a days everything is commercialised like what ISKCON has done in all these places. Sanctity has given way for fashion with all ultra modern activities to lure people.

    I’m planning to visit Hardwar,Rishikesh,Badrinath very soon this year(May,2010) with our other family members. But the comments of the experienced people about these places discouraging me. Not able to understand, are they advice not to go or we can ignore those discomforts and above all to get the blessings of God we have to visit. If anybody advices would be better.

  • Darshan

    Till i Havve not visited, but while i go through the above all comments, i would like to say that We- Indian can only do these. Whether it is good/Right or false. We should respect our religious and country. we are resposible for uncleanliness and others managment deficiencies. Please do not compare with other countries temple managements, beacause they have to abide some rules and regulation. Meaning at all location in the world, Hindu’s temples are managed by indian only, although we found some difference. The reason is our tendency and rules and regulation.BE PROUD FOR INDIANS.ANY WHERE YOU GO INDIAN REAMINS SAME.
    All know God, God will not forgot our works.

    This is no doubt a very sacred placed. Specially the evening is exceptional. one can feel himself near to god. But basic amenities need to be improved a lot to compare with other developed country & religion.However in a country like us specially for hindus its a very nice place when you disturbed in mind. This place will rejuvenite one & all.
    Thanks for visit.

    Dear Sir,
    The photos are superb.At Hardwar, the holy place of Shiva & Vishnu the time stops.The Gateway to the mighty himalayas and the place where Bhageerathi enters to the northern plains,Hardwar is a place to visit.Even though few commented that the pandas are greedy their attitude is much better than their counter parts of Varanasi.Hardwar is a place which beckons the visitors time& again
